The story of what happened

Fan Bingbing, a very successful actress from China, who played Blink in the 2014 film X-Men: Days of Future Past and has been the highest-paid actress since 2013, last posted on social media on June 2 and vanished.

Many speculated that she had signed some secret contracts with a Chinese entertainment company that will help her to avoid paying higher taxes and now she is held by the Chinese government.

Recently, China’s state media and several other news outlets, including Taiwan News, reported that Fan Bingbing was “under control, and will accept the legal decision.” Also, they stated that avoiding paying taxes is just the “tip of the iceberg.”

It seems like China is censoring news about her

In late July, The Economic Observer, the independent Chinese newspaper, wrote that police is examining actresses financial case and that even some Fan’s staff members went under police investigation as well. Moreover, Fan and her brother were not allowed to leave the country.

But this post was taken down shortly after it was published. As well as some other earlier posts about Fan and even comments from Fan’s supporters, who were concerned about her well-being were removed from the social media, according to Free Weibo, a website that tracks social-media censorship in China.
